In a move that is intended to make sharing to Instagram easier in markets with slow network speeds by eliminating the need to download the Instagram app, the Facebook owned company has updated its mobile site with the ability to post photos without using the app, TechCrunch reports.
The mobile version of Instagram’s website was previously limited to browsing your timeline, search and discovery, notifications, and managing your account. But now anyone can visit Instagram.com from a mobile device to post photos to the social network.
Instagram’s mobile site leaves out data-heavy features like Stories and newer capabilities like messaging, but it’s a lightweight option on slow networks.
The launch begs the question of whether Instagram will release an Instagram Lite version of its native app.[related-posts]
